welcome to "cbs this morning." norah is off. good morning gayle. >> good morning to you. we begin with progress on day 11 of the partial shutdown. obama and congressional republicans are starting to work together. they're swapping proposals to fund the government and increase the debt limit. >> the first round of discussions started yesterday and lasted through the night. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you. this is really the closest we've seen to a break through in two weeks. 1 house republicans met with the president and offered him this proposal. they'll vote to raise the debt ceiling short term six weeks to give the two sides time to negotiate over debt reduction. the president is open to that if republicans vote to reopen the government, something they've been unwilling to do unless he makes changes to obama care.
7:04 am
>> house republican leaders spent the evening trading proposals with the white house after a meeting with the president they described constructive. >> we'll come back and have more discussions. the president will consult with the administration folks and hopefully we can see a way forward after that. >> in a statement the white house said it was a good meeting but no specific determination was immediate. gop is speaking concession in exchange for reopening the government. originally they wanted to defund the president's entire health care law. now they may settle for the unpopular device tax that pays for the law. boehner signals he's flexible. >> what do you need in order to reopen the full government? >> i don't want to put anything on the table or take anything off the table. >> the house gop softened the stance after the party's approval ratings hit record lows and allies in business groups
7:05 am
warned this pair of manufactured crisis over government funding and the debt ceiling could cause another recession. at a forum, john mccain argued the damage to the party could take years to undo. >> why should we put the american people through this? why should we do this? >> house republicans argue hard ball tactics may pay off because the president is promises talks of debt reduction. >> what this will do hopefully is show movement on their side and hopefully get movement from the president of the united states. >> senate republicans will be meeting with the president at the white house in about an hour. some of them are unhappy with the proposal put forth by the house gop counter parts. they don't think the increase gives the two sides enough time for tricky negotiations. after all, the last time they tried to do something like this,
7:06 am
they were in a room for three months and still couldn't come up with a deal. >> nancy, thanks. news political director john dickerson. good morning. >> good morning charlie. >> the president says no. what does boehner have to do to get the president to go from no yes? >> we're talking really now just about the shutdown of the government portion of this. everybody seems to be in agreement on lifting the debt ceiling without any conditions. now there's a dance step. this is the step staffers have been talking about all night long. that is the white house the president doesn't want concessions wrung out of him because the government has been shutdown. that's his position all along. he knows the house of representatives john boehner needs to show he won something in the long shutdown fight. boehner needs to find a set of concessions he can sell to conservatives and his conference to get them to support this
7:07 am
move. the white house is saying we're open to talking parts of the affordable care act after you end the shutdown. that's a sequence here. that's what they're dancing around in negotiations. >> to speak to affordable care or entitlement reform and those kinds of things? >> two separate issues. the big stuff we've been talking years, taxes and growth would be in context of negotiations that would go on after the debt ceiling is raised. here we're with talking about the purchase price of opening the government again. the white house has always said we're not going to offer up things because you shut down the government. that's what they say to republicans. republicans want something though after all of this back and forth. that's what they're trying to figure out. >> the gop has hit record lows. how much of a motivating factor was that to the talks we saw yesterday? >> this pressure has been in the
7:08 am
system. there have been a lot of republicans who said even before the government was shut down this was a political loser. now a lot of republicans say i told you so. numbers consistently getting worse for republicans. that puts pressure to reach pay deal. that is behind a lot of republican movement here. >> what is it you think the president can give boehner to make it possible to sell the 30 republicans? >> that's the crucial question, charlie. i think that he has to give him some kind of assurance that they'll talk about something having to do with the affordable care act. he won't with link it to reopening the government. i'm not sure that's going to be enough. that's about all the president is willing to give at the moment. >> at least they're talking. >> it started with the affordable care act defunding it. now they're saying maybe there's something else here. thank you john. the ceo of starbucks is jump ago head and posting a petition
7:09 am
in stores today and publishing the message in major newspapers. the coffee house chain is urging lawmakers to make a deal. in the interview, howard shults tells us congress is not representing americans. >> open the government, do not default on debt between now and the 17th. most importantly and i'm pleading, on behalf of so many people who do not have a voice, reach a long term bipartisan comprehensive long term deal not a short term kick the can solution that we'll revisit in the middle of the holiday season. that is not a solution. that is not leadership. >> he says he also wants other high level ceos to sign his petition. stocks up this morning. the house republican proposal for short term extension of the debt limit sent stocks soars.
7:10 am
dow jumped 323 points. now our columnist from yahoo. >> it was the removal of the debt ceiling as the main front in this war. that was considered the unknowable problem. >> washington believed it was conceived but now they're comfortable with the belief. >> exactly. yesterday we took back in one big bite the kind of grinding losses that built up in october as this went on. it's not as if the market says it will be smooth from here. we've taken the risk off the table. traders remember every time we got a last minute solution in january and 2011, the market took off with rally. they're almost anticipating that. >> what are they thinking if they delay until november 1st? it's sort of a kick the can routine. what that do to confidence of investors? >> it won't matter. well it will eventually.
7:11 am
they'll defer anxiety until it gets closer. wall street is not particularly comfortable trying to handicap. they wait until it's deadline time to worry about it. >> the other aspect is how other financial centers around the world look at how the united states is handling it? it makes little sense in the rest of the world. one other country has a debt ceiling. it's historical. >> when they look at how our government is having a hard time reaching a decision, does that lower their confidence in the years ahead? >> it might. it's really not evident in the ways you think it would manifest in the markets. treasury securities are the water in the world. >> they clearly understand the impact of default if it happens, catastrophic consequences to them as well. >> without a doubt. that's why nobody wanted to consider the likelihood of that. >> what will they do about that?
7:12 am
my son in china said people on the street said what is wrong with your government? why can't they reach a deal? >> it makes little sense. we've had this dysfunction for a long time, very short term patches instead of solutions. yet the economy is growing better than the rest of the developed world and markets have done better. it's as if once government gets out of the the way with short term deals it's a decent picture: >> are you encouraged for the day? >> encouraged for the year. we've had a big up year already. it's not as if we've suffered. >> michael, we thank you. this morning the u.n. group in charge of destroying syria's chemical weapons won the nobel peace prize. the prize to the organization for prohibition of chemical weapons. pakistan at this teenager activist did not win despite being considered a heavy faif ritd. secretary of state john

[ male announcer ] this is jim, a man who doesn't stand still. but jim has afib, atrial fibrillation -- an irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. that puts jim at a greater risk of stroke. for years, jim's medicine tied him to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine.

7:40 am
xarelto® is not for patients with artificial heart valves. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto®. once a day xarelto® means no regular blood monitoring -- no known dietary restrictions. for more information and savings options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit goxarelto.com. ugh! actually progresso's soup has pretty bold flavor. i love bold flavors! i'd love it if you'd open the chute!

8:01 am
fund the government and increase the debt limit. >> the white house is saying we're taupe talking about parts of the affordable care act, but after you've ended the shutdown. >> what is this that has sent stocks soaring? >> it was that removal of the debt ceiling. >> this morning the u.n. group in charge of destroying syria's chemical weapons won the nobel peace prize. pakistani teenager activist malala did not win despite being considered a very heavy favorite. >> secretary of state john kerry arrived in afghanistan on a surprise visit. >> two rabbis accused in a kidnapping and torture plot. the target -- men who refuse to divorce their wives. >> does that surprise you? >> yes, it's like a movie out of hollywood. like the godfather. >> we uncovered one of the great untolds, was your heart pounding? >> yes a little bit. i certainly was nervous, yes.

8:03 am
and this deal will determine how many u.s. troops stay on the ground after international forces draw down at the end of the 2014. now, up to this point, talks have completely failed and the white house is fed up. they don't want a repeat of the mistakes of iraq, which was talks fell apart, there was no security agreement and the u.s. completely withdrew. if that happens in afghanistan, the risk is that there will be violent extremists like the taliban who can gain an advantage. there's also a concern that all of the work hammered out by u.s. diplomats and american soldiers would be endangered without in kind of agreement here that would protect their role. now, we don't expect the terms of a deal to be signed today, but more than 2,000 soldiers have died in afghanistan. kerry is going to be here at a pivotal moment to try to come to some agreement here on what their roll will be and we'll see
8:04 am
what they've come through after the end of an intense day in negotiations. democrats and republicans in washington are inching closer to a deal to reopen the government and avoid a possible default. a new gallup poll may have explained their motivation to get something done. >> the poll finds that only 18% of americans are satisfied with the government's performance, and that is the lowest approval rating gallup has ever recorded. it fell 14 points in just the past month. nancy cordes is watching the negotiations on capitol hill. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, gayle. we are told that white house staffers and gop staffers were in negotiations all night long. no decisions made, but at least the two sides are talking now. here's what they are talking about. house republicans have a new proposal. they want to vote to raise the debt ceiling for six weeks in order to give the two sides time to hold the wide ranging negotiations the president has
8:05 am
promised over debt reduction, maybe over the president's health care law and spending cuts. the white house sees this republican proposal as progress. initially you may recall republicans wanted big concessions before they would raise the debt ceiling, but they were getting a lot of heat from business groups who say, look, the closer we get to default the worse it is for the economy. but here's the big sticking point right now. the president has said that republicans need to reopen the government in order for these negotiations to happen, and all along republicans have wanted some kind of change to obama care in order to allow that to happen. their demands have shrunk, while they still want something, while the president says he's not going to give them a prize for reopening the government. that's what they're discussing right now. >> nancy, thank you. with us is bob schieffer, washington correspondent and host of "face the nation." bob, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> is there in washington today a sense that we now realize we're going to get this done, just a question of how and when?
8:06 am
>> well, that's my conclusion. i think by the end of the day they will have worked this out. i don't know what the details of this thing are going to be. but what i know is republicans have now come to the conclusion that they've had enough. they're being hounded to death. this latest poll by "the wall street journal" and nbc news shows that americans overwhelmingly blame the republicans for this happening. here are the kind of signs that i see as meaningful. earlier this week you had the lobbyists for coke industries, the coke brothers who fund so many of the very, very conservative causes, announcing that the koch brothers had never wanted to tie obama care to shutting down the government. night before last, ken cuccinelli, the republican candidate for governor out in virginia was at a function and ted cruz is one of the leaders
8:07 am
of this shut down the government movement, he showed up at the same function. cuccinelli went to quite extremes to make sure he didn't get his picture taken with ted cruz. this guy has become toxic to other republicans. so i think if they can find some way -- and i think they will find a way -- to give speaker john boehner a little way to save face, give him a little something, i think the rest of it will fall into place and this will be done. you know, charlie, the pendulum in washington never stops in the middle. it goes to the right or it goes to the left. and once it gets too far to the right, then it starts to push back. and i think republicans realize they've taken this a little beyond where it all to be, and they are the ones that are getting hammered for it. >> it's not just the republicans, though, bob. isn't the president's approval rating is also taking a beating, too, isn't it? >> well, it is. nobody's looking good in this
8:08 am
thing. in that poll we were just talking about, 6 out of 10 americans said they'd like to see every single member of congress defeated. and so this -- the quicker that both sides can get this thing wound up now, the better off i think they feel that they will be. and that's how these things are generally done. >> essential to give something for the speaker to save his face with the members that have been recalcitrant. does it have to be about obama care or can it be about something else? >> i'm not sure what it's about, charlie. i think they'll figure this out. it may be something just like he will agree to discuss certain things. he will agree to discuss entitlement reform or something of that nature. they'll find something, and i think that's the last thing, the last ingredient that has to be found here. but i think they're prt close to getting that.
8:09 am
>> in six weeks will we be back talking about the same thing? >> there is one proposal republicans are putting out, not much has been said about it. that would put the debt ceiling thing in effect for a year. but we'll see where that goes. so far they're close to getting this done, i think. >> yesterday on capitol hill, jack lew called it a manufactured political crisis. do you think it's a manufactured political crisis? >> yeah. absolutely. i mean, just like sequestration. these are problems that have been created by the congress and by the government here. these were things that were not going to happen naturally and shouldn't have, but it is. and both sides are to blame for this, gayle. >> so what's on "face the nation" on sunday? >> well, we're going to have chuck schumer who's been a key democrat in all this over in the house. we're going to have senator kelly ayotte, a republican from
8:10 am
new hampshire. we'll have some other players in this because this story is still unfolding, obviously. but for sure this is what we'll be talking about. >> we'll be watching, thank you, bob. >> thank you. >> the world's space exploration is remembering one of its earliest pioneers this morning. astronaut scott carpenter died. he not only explored the heights of space but the depths of the ocean floor. scott carpenter was a veteran navy pilot when he was tapped to become one of the first astronauts. the group was known as the mercury 7. >> lieutenant malcolm scott carpenter. >> he served as a backup pilot for john glenn who became the first american to orbit the earth. it was carpenter who delivered this historic send-off moments before liftoff. >> with god-speed, john glenn. >> carpenter was the second american sent into orbit, but on his one and only voyage into space he missed his ocean
8:11 am
landing by 288 miles. >> we still don't know if he's safe through the atmospheric layer. we haven't had a transmission from him. there perhaps have been radar indications and there have been radar indications that at least the capsule is all right. >> the entire nation waited on edge until carpenter was found an hour later. he was safe in his life raft. he was welcomed back as a hero but tension with his nasa bosses over the landing brought his space career to an end. then he turned his passion for exploration to the sea and became an underwater explorer. in 1965, carpenter spent 30 days in a working laboratory on the ocean floor. known for his insatiable curiosity, carpenter once said, conquering of fear is one of life's greatest pleasures and it can be done a lot of different places. he was 88. >> an explorer. >> i'll say. >> you probably interviewed him.

he's the man that filmed on his 8 millimeter camera. bob schieffer was there on that day 50 years ago. but first we meet alexandra zapruder, the filmmaker's granddaughter. >> this is my granddaughter, must be 1940s. you can see he was very dapper. he was a great guy. he was funny, he was incredibly bright. he'd come to this country at the age of 15 as an immigrant. they lived in absolute grinding poverty and anti-semitism in russia. >> the zapruders settled in dallas where he started a clothing business. this is your grandfather's company. >> yes, this is jennifer jrs. >> reporter: their office was across the street from the book depository in the dal-tex building on dealey plaza. >> our family, they were real kennedy people. my grandfather loved president kennedy. my aunt had gone that morning to love field to welcome the president and mrs. den dee when
8:32 am
they arrived. >> reporter: he first thought about filming from his office window but instead went down to the street and stood on this parapet. that's him in the hat. he took some test shots of friends, then started his camera. >> this is wfaa tv in dallas, texas. >> my name is abraham zapruder. >> reporter: he was just another eyewitness when a distracted anchor on wfaa interviewed him later that day before the film had been developed. >> i saw his head open up, all blood and everything. and i kept on shooting. i'm just sick. >> i think that pretty well expresses the entire feelings of our entire world. >> reporter: did your grandfather keep taking home movies after that? >> no, he didn't. he didn't even want to look through the lens of the camera again after that. i think it was too painful for
8:33 am
him. >> you talk about this film other than the fact that he recorded this extraordinary historic moment, in terms of what makes it so -- >> well, there were a lot of other cameras, as we point out, there were a lot of other cameras on dealey plaza that day, this is the only one that essentially got the sequence from beginning to end. the really powerful frame is frame 313 where you literally see the president shot in the head. i don't care how many times you watch that. it takes your breath away every time. >> yes. >> do you think that even mr. zapruder was haunted by that film? >> he literally had nightmares. he had nightmares right after he took it, for days and weeks beyond. the film was ultimately bought by life magazine, and they tried to give him a copy back, but he wouldn't take it. he didn't want it. >> what did he believe about the assassination? >> he subscribed to the warren commission report. he thought it was a lone gunman. he's not a scientist, he was a businessman. but those were his feelings. >> bob schieffer, can you see what i'm holding up? this is the paper you know well,
8:34 am

8:35 am
because we were besieged with these phone calls when she first said, is there anybody there that can give me a ride to dallas? and then it kind of sunk in on me quickly. so then i turned it over to the city editor, and i had a triumph sports car. there's the story i wrote about it later. another reporter and i, bill foster, went out to her house on the west side of ft. worth picked her up. bill drove, i sat in the backseat with her and we drove her over to dallas. it was kind of the first big story and exclusive that i ever had. i sold the quotes to -- i didn't sell them, but they sent me a check. "newsweek" paid me i think it was $60 and "time" magazine paid me $50. the first national story i ever had. but i look back on those days and it's just almost surreal. i think did this really happen, but it's right there in the star-telegram. i would also add that the

"star-telegram" has done a wonderful job. they've put together all of the front pages of that weekend, and they mail them out to their subscribers. a i've got the same copy that you've got there. and i tell you, it was such an awful time. >> bob, since you were involved in the story really from day one during the first hour, do you believe that lee harvey oswald acted alone or was it part of a conspiracy? and did you get anything from his mother in the car that day? >> you know, his mother was deranged. all she had on her mind was that nobody was going to remember her and she'd starve to death and they'd give money to his wife, but no, i think that he was the gunman. there's no question in my mind about that. he was a cold-blooded killer. as he was leaving the school book depository that day and they put out all points bulletin and the policeman tippett was in his car there and saw him
8:37 am
walking down the street, called him over to the car and oswald just walked up and shot him. shot him at point blank range, then went into the texas theater down the street. he was armed and when people went in there, they disarmed him, but he tried to kill them, too. and almost did. why would he have done that if he had not been the -- >> and then killed by jack ruby. what are your thoughts about what jack ruby's motivation? >> jack ruby was this small time guy, one of these guys that he's kind of a cop groupie. he used to hang around the police station. anybody who was ever a police reporter like me knows there are people like that that come to the police station, buy cops coffee and stuff like that. he owned a strip joint. he needed to stay in good with the cops. i think ruby thought that he would be a national hero if he killed this man. and i think that's why he did it. as to whether there was any other connection, i've always kept an open mind about whether
8:38 am
there was anybody else involved besides oswald. but to this point, nobody has shown me any evidence that convinced me that there was anybody but oswald involved in this. he was a madman. and people who are mad do irrational things. and i think that's what this was. >> bob and anthony mason, thank you. you can see anthony's full report on anthony zapruder this sunday morning. you know him as mr. october. reggie jackson is in our toyota green room. we'll find out who g,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,

8:40 am
reggie jackson signed with the new york yankees back in 189 e 1977. he had already won three world series and a major league mvp award with the oakland a's, but
8:41 am
it wasn't until game six of '77 world series that jackson entered baseball immortality. october 18, 1977 will be remembered as the day reggie jackson became mr. october. with the yankees up three games to two, jackson literally took over game six. first pitch, fourth inning. home run. first pitch, fifth inning. another home run. first pitch, eighth inning. the longest home run of the night. and the yankees won their 21st championship, the first in 15 years. but the '77 yankees were known as much for their turmoil as success. with volatile owner george steinbrennerer and manager martin, the team was always back page news. the bronx bombers had become the bronx zoo and jackson was right in the middle of the it. he constantly feuded with martin, almost coming to blows
8:42 am
during one game in boston after the manager doubted the star player's effort. but in the playoffs nobody questioned jackson's ability in the clutch. and the yankees won the world series again in 1978. he was inducted into the hall of fame in 1993 after hitting 563 career home runs. >> oh, what a world series for reggie jackson! >> but it's the three reggie hit one october night in the bronx that will be forever remembered. reggie jackson is out with a new book about his earlier years with the yankees, it's called "becoming mr. october." good morning to you, mr. october. >> good morning to you, gayle. >> you know, what's fascinating to me that even the phrase mr. october, we think of a term of endearment, was started with sarcasm about you. >> i guess you could look at it that way. >> that's what you said in your book, that it wasn't a term of affection in the beginning. >> that's true.
8:43 am
started off saying autumn child and then it kind of clicked on little further. and comment made in detroit. i don't feel like talking about -- just go down and talk to mr. october. >> but you said you wrote this book, reggie, because you wanted to set the record straight about you. you were embarrassed and upset with how you were portrayed. >> espn did a miniseries, i guess you would call it the bronx is burning, and i felt i was vilified in the book and embarrassed the way it was portrayed. i really felt bad for several months about it. i had a really good relationship with espn at the time. never really got past it. and was uncomfortable. so i had a chance to write my view of what happened. and that's what this is. >> let's go back to that night. first pitch of each home run, what were you thinking? what were you feeling? what were you looking for? >> i was looking for the ball in at the time they didn't have the technology that the game has today to be able to, you know,
8:44 am
get pitcher sequences and, you know, what their -- what they would do most of the time. searching for words here. but we had great scouts. a guy named jerry walker and great gene michael. so i had great insight, i knew what they were going to do. i knew the ball was coming inside. and that really helped me for the evening. the rest of it is history and god-given talent and things like that. blessed for the evening. but i had real good scouting reports. >> in the end when you went to the hall of fame you went as a yankee. >> yes. i had a little difficulty in oakland there. you know, i wasn't as accepted as i would like to have been. i was certainly accepted by george and the yankees and the yankee family. really got lucky, if you will, by being able to -- by being not
8:45 am
welcomed by the a's if you will, the organization at the time, and when i went back to the yankees to go in as a yankee, george had his arms wide open as he had done so many times in his career with people that had been with the yankees, been with, not been with. >> and there's also you and billie martin. >> billy martin. hired and fired a few times as well, but certainly a significant part of the book. a tumultuous relationship he and i had. more dislike than like if you will. my expression of it, things i went through -- >> but talk about the things you went through though, reggie. i thought that was very eye opening. you talk about your locker being in a corner where you weren't surrounded by anybody and billy martin taking you out of the game in the middle of an important game after telling people watch what i'm going to do to him. >> there was a lot of things that went on, gayle, charlie, that a good friend of mine who
8:46 am
helped me with the book significantly spent some time with me, lived with me during a couple of the seasons and he had said so many things went on reggie i never bothered to tell you because you'd lost it. he said, you know, here's something that i found out a few years later that he went to the mound and he really went to the mound to take out mike torres and he said watch this. and the guys really didn't even know what was going on. and mike said don't do that, don't do that. and then he sent paul blare out to get me. >> why did you two not get along? >> what i had heard was that i didn't respect him the way he wanted to be respected or treated him the way he wanted to be treated. i didn't call him over the winter when i was traded to the team. george didn't really ask him if i was the guy that he wanted. and what happened for me to get there, therman munson and he
8:47 am
said go get reggie, get the big guy in oakland. he's the guy we need. >> that's him right there. >> yeah. >> then you have the whole straw gate thing, i call it. it's almost like so many things were working against you and you didn't help yourself either a couple of times. where you said, you know, where you reportedly said i'm the straw that stirs the drink, but you said you never said that. >> i don't feel i ever said that. i would say i did not say it. certainly roger ward believes i did. he had said it so many times. he says i lied about it. >> i would love to reach out -- try to reach out to roger and have a talk with him and tell me how you heard it. >> but do you feel that? >> feel what? >> about yourself, that you're the straw that stirs the drink? >> no, i would say i was the final ingredient that helped this team get over the top to become champions. >> great,,,,,,,,
